thinking of updating my blog

I’m thinking of redesigning my blog again. I’m thinking of making it more professional. I’m thinking of paying the annual rate for a straight on “.com” website address. A friend was suggesting a new design system. I hate to brag, but I am almost pushing to 2,000 followers here and I never thought I’d ever reach that point. I never thought I’d be even remotely that interesting to garner so much readers. I’m really thankful to all of you who come here and read the weird and strange thoughts that run free in my head.

found this on google images under ‘writing’ and I’m thinking of using it because, you know, blog entries look better when there are pictures in ’em

The least I could do is level-up, right? I should try to make my blog easier to read, somehow, and make it prettier to look at. I don’t know. I just thought that it would do nicely with a touch up.

What do you think? I’d love to hear from you all.

I was wondering if I should somehow streamline the categories. I seem to get a lot of responses from entries about writing. I also get a lot of responses from my poems. And then I get another set of responses from my thoughts on HIV, LGBTQ issues, and the community. I don’t seem to get much responses when it comes to my boring life. *everybody laugh* Maybe I can somehow focus on what people seem to be interested in.

I’m just scared of having to learn how to transfer the entries here on another site. I’ll figure it out.

Who knows? Maybe I could become a professional blogger? *everybody laughs*

I’m just musing out loud. I don’t know yet. But 1,800+ followers is no laughing matter and I appreciate all of you for following me and taking an interest. I really, truly appreciate it.

I’ll probably start working on the idea more when I get back to Bacolod. Here in Manila, I have too much I want to do. Something like that requires tons of research on my part and planning and all of which I can do from Bacolod. Here, I want to take advantage of being in the midst of the action and looking for new places to write.

So, maybe I’ll hear from you (or maybe not) and we’ll see how it goes. But if the site suddenly changes or I announce a new website address or whatnot, you can say you heard it here first.

Cheers!

  1. I think that’s a great idea – finally getting your own domain and changing your theme to make it more fitting. I suggest you write down topics you usually write about and then categorize them one by one. You can also do sub-categories if they’re too many and you want to highlight some blog posts. But I don’t agree that you only write what your current audience wants to read. After all, this is your domain. This is yours, so you write whatever you want. And that’s how you started small and eventually grew big – the rawness in your words is apparent, and your readers like that “raw” factor. So just be you. πŸ™‚ I’m a new reader, by the way. But I’m already looking forward to reading more of your succeeding posts. πŸ™‚

  2. Oh, I forgot to mention. There are a lot of photo dump sites where you can borrow photos, just credit them. I’m currently using Unsplash if I don’t have any photos for my blog posts.

  3. Looking forward to the blog update! First heard of you when I watched No Filter last year. Now, I’m a regular reader. Enjoying your thoughts about writing.. no actually, every stuff you write. I badly want to get my hands on your book, Remnants. Do you know any bookstore that still sells this? Hope I’m not too late.

    Have a happy day Wanggo! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much! Unfortunately, it’s never made it to print and only available as an e-book. (No one thinks it’s worth the paper! Hahaha)

      You can get it from Amazon or Kobo. I think you can download a PDF version from Kobo. Check out my Remnants link above. 😊

      Thank you!!!
